Come one, come all to the first annual Ponyville Paintball Competition! Wait, can ponies even..? Nevermind. How they shoot isn't important. What IS important is the prize: a year's supply of cupcakes from Sugarcube Corner. Enough to drive a town full of ponies crazy? Apparently. In the chaos that ensues, expect all sorts of action film references, both obvious and subtle, and the kind of craziness that only ponies shooting each other can bring. Action! Drama! Romance! All of this and more in My Little Paintball!

A few things:
1 is this inspired by the tv show community?
2 this is awesome.
3 it isnt just a game... this....is ....SPARTA!!!:flutterrage:

Oh, this is awesome! And completely ridonkulous!

This is awesome. Not only is the idea orriginal and hillarious, while still remaining serious, it's written incredibly well. This story is great. I will track. The idea of a serious situation with guns while still remaining non-lethal is just pure gold. keep up up.

Great story so far, never expected paintball to be the focus of a story.
Idea: Maybe you, Xozjain, can do little side stories of how this game is affecting the other characters like
Derpy (or Ditzy so I've heard) :derpytongue2:
Big Mac :eeyup:
The CMCs :unsuresweetie: :scootangel: :applecry:
just a thought :pinkiesmile:

There should be a TF2 reference in here somewhere.:pinkiecrazy:

I'm not really sure what to say...
two things come to mind:
1) how do they fire the guns?
2) they must really want those cupcakes for it to drag on this long

Okay, this is funny and awesome. Tracking!

412683 I think Pegasi and Earth ponies use their mouths, while Unicorns use their magic/telekinesis:rainbowlaugh:

Great story! This is a really cool plot! The only other stories like this was actually a crossover. This is getting very good! I agree with Marq Harrihoof, you should do side stories!:pinkiehappy:

Why is Celestia so late? I mean three days?! They are waiting three days for this and it takes more than three days?! Well yeah, I get why it takes so long. Celestia better not jump out during the competition, on a shooting spree, working with her sister.....that would be so badass!:rainbowlaugh::pinkiehappy::yay:



"SPART-... paintball?" This looks interesting, and by interesting I mean amazing. I look forward to more.:pinkiehappy:

412311 That was such a great episode.

This story is off to a great start.

Oh, dear. I hadn't expected such an enthusiastically positive reception. Thank you all very much. I see a few questions and I'll be happy to answer them.
Community is one of my favorite shows (continuation of the Pillow-Blanket War tonight!) and Modern Warfare is my favorite episode. While it definitely came to mind while writing this, it wasn't really inspired by it. But it does seem to have the same feel.
After the first few chapters that set up the overall story, I am going to feature chapters that focus on individual characters and groups. If there's anyone in particular anyone would like to see, feel free to comment or message me.
I envision the guns as being mostly similar to real-world paintball guns, but with clamps on the back that attach to either one of the user's front legs and a larger trigger guard to fit the hooves.
The unicorns really are at an unfair advantage with their magic, but that's completely slipped mayor's mind. As for why Celestia's so late... you'll just have to wait and see! :trollestia:

Spiffing story. A moustache for you sir!:moustache:

Wait, you said the prize was cupcakes?:rainbowhuh: I feel like I sould be disturbed, but why?

*Begins thinking*
Dear Mother of God.

That is EXACTLY what I said before I started reading it. And I stick by that. It's fucking AWESOME


This looks like one seriously traumatic game.
I hope we see the flower trio sneaking through gardens :pinkiehappy:

419359 They use the ponies who get out first to help "bake" the cupcakes...

Okay, this one took an absurd amount of time, but it was nothing to do with the writing itself. Future chapter updates should arrive much faster. Rather than fill up my message box and comments with votes for the next character, I decided to move it to a blog post instead, so check that out

I have to say I like where this is going so much. I'm also really glad to see an update! I like how each of the Mane6 seem to be getting their own little niche in combat.

At least it seems to me that they are each getting a specific type of combat characteristic, maybe I'm imagining thing. :pinkiecrazy:

"Let's charge it all at once, because that plan couldn't possibly fail!"

I forgot about Spike... also Dirty Harry is cool.

Nice, very inventive, especially Twilight's phantom paintball gun tactic, I look forward to more.

Am I supposed to be laughing now?


I imagine him with this moustache at the same time :moustache:

Is it bad i keep trying to re like this story with each new chapter? :twilightblush:

I love the way you did Spike: Mysterious badass drifter anti-hero. Fits perfectly. Keep it up!

Oh wow, hot fuzz ref. what a beauty. Awesome story!

That pony = Featherweight's dad = brilliance!


Ought Heavyweight. I get it.

I'll still call him Snowflake "Horse" Power.

Fluttershy is River. This is the best thing EVER!!!!

I've put this off for far too long...
Happy November everypony!

434536 :pinkiecrazy: can I help I love kil.. I mean making cupcakes.

...Fluttershy, no power in the 'verse can stop her :fluttershyouch:

Nice nod to Firefly btw :rainbowdetermined2:

Awesome, this story is back. I can't wait to read more chapters.
I did like the 'took a level in jerkass'/Charlie's Angels reference Cheerilee made.

oh you and your references to movies and other things! Hot Fuzz rules

this makes me think of a scene in a book called "battlestations!": someone thought he had won the paintball game, so he grinned..."-and that's how he got ultramarine dye on his teeth."

a timey-wimey artifact

there's an amusing comic on Deviant art called "timey-wimey" where time goes crazy...here's a link to one of the best pictures:

shook her hoof at the stallion

if i had fingers, i'd be giving you one.
also, spike is dead.
